Bayit Yehudi leader and Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett warned on Monday in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour that a "bad deal" with Iran will lead to a military response.

Bennett stressed that Israel wants world powers to come to an agreement on Tehran's disputed nuclear program. "We just want the right the deal," he said, adding that "The right deal is one that dismantles the nuclear weapons production machine".

“There’s no one who wants a war less than us. However, it’s one of those cases where a bad deal will lead to a war, and a good deal with actually prevent war,” he said.

According to Bennett, any deal that allows Iran to keep enrichment capabilities in exchange for an easing of economic sanctions will allow the Islamic Republic to wait until international attention is not so focused on it. At which point, he said Iran would be able to break out with a bomb in six weeks.
